I am trying to help my son with Spanish synonims.

We have
Estímulo
Estimulo
Estimuló

Can anybody suggest how best to deal with the correct use of the change of meaning when creating a sentence.
Many thanks

Thank you very much for your help. We are living in Spain and my children attend Spanish school here. However, we still struggle to a degree. No doubt I will be back.

Again, thank you very much for your help.

Estimulo = I stimulate Estímulo = a stimulus

Estimuló = She/he stimulated

They are no synonyms. The ending -o for verbs with an accent on the second syllable from the end, indicate 1st person singular, present indicative. The ending -ó, stressed, indicates 3rd person singular, preterite. The form "estímulo" cannot be a verbal form, and it is used as a noun.
